Manila Diaries: Almost I Do

April 2015

Hello, dolls! Hello, October!! What an eventful first week of October. We are celebrating 3 birthdays this week — Gerry, Peter, and Mama’s. I am so happy I get to celebrate Mama’s birthday with her this year, last time I was home for her birthday was 2013. Hopefully starting this year I won’t miss any birthdays again!So Alexander is 14 weeks old now…wow how time flies! It really is amazing to see him grow. Every milestone in his life is joy to all of us. Can you believe he prefers to stand during playtime and talks A LOT now. Aaaah my cute boy! ā¤

Anyway, Only 2 months left until we kiss 2016 goodbye. As much as I hate to see another awesome year go, I am (once again) excited for January to come. There will be lots of adventure for us! šŸ™‚

I love 2016 because I did not feel like I was away from my family at all. My sister was here to welcome 2016 with me, my parents arrived in the US and June and Mama is staying until December so yeah.. I love 2016.

Although I have to say, even if my family could stay here for n months, I still miss the Philippines — I miss my Lola most especially. So yeah, 2017 you are going to be even better!

Now that we have baby A, every adventure is extra exciting, extra memorable, and filled with extra extra extra love.

I used to wonder how it would be when my family and A’s family are together. It happened a year and a half ago when A’s family (now my family too!) went to the Philippines for our wedding.

They were only there for a couple of weeks and most days we had to devote for the wedding/wedding prep. Here’s one of the awesome adventures that we had during their first week in Manila. (more…)

Winter 2015

Hello, dolls! Hello, work! sigh x100 This month was a whirlwind of emotions. We started September with gratitude and happiness as we celebrated Daddy’s birthday and baby A’s baptism. Going back to work full time was pretty overwhelming for me as a new Mom, I have to take a “break” forĀ milk timeĀ very 2 hours — if I am lucky because duuh who am I kidding? Working in the kitchen is pretty demanding which ends up to me postponingĀ milk timeĀ to another hour or two (which I really hate!). Anyway, Daddy is now back in the Philippines and my sister is leaving in less than 2 weeks —Ā I AM SO NOT EXCITED ABOUT THIS.Ā The energy here at home is not going to be the same when everyone is back home again.

September is going to end with lots and lots of rain…which makes me want to stay home and cuddle with my boy…baby A. Did I mention it’s Fall already? Yeap..my second favorite season is finally here!!! I sometimes think about how life was when it was just A and I. I always end up looking at our “date night photos” and reminisce about the good food and awesome Mondays that we’ve had.
